    Basketball Parlay of the Day Contest - Wednesday, 4/23/08

    Starting Tuesday (April 1), we will start a new April Hoops Parlay Contest with a prize of $250 account at 5 Dimes, 3 time roll-over. Last place will receive a $25 5 Dimes account with a 3 time roll over. If there is a tie for last place in both units and game-by-game record (15 parlay minimum), there will be NO last place prize.

    *IMPORTANT*
    All players must have an account at 5 Dimes prior to making picks Sign up here

    Before participating, players must PM their 5 Dimes account ID to SBRforum Staff


    1. Check in the NBA BASKETBALL HANDICAPPING FORUM each day for the daily thread to be posted by LT Profits. Lines will be posted by 1:00 p.m. (ET) each day. Plays may be posted before that, but the official posted lines will be used for grading.

    2. Posted spreads and totals are the only eligible plays for grading, no Money Lines or Halves allowed. NBA, NCAA Men's and beginning April 1, NCAA Women's games included.

    3. Two-game parlay picks, laying 10 to win 26. Post entire parlay at same time, no open parlays.

    4. Here’s the catch: Your play must include a write-up! The write-up does not have to be long, just a sentence or two about why you are making your play. If need be, please refer to prior month's contests for examples.

    5. Entries that are past-post or do not have analysis for both games will be NO ACTION. Once your two-team parlay has been posted, you CANNOT change either play. Any edited post will count as a LOSS! If you make a mistake (such as leaving out "Over" or "Under" or not clearly stating your selection), need to add analysis or wish to enter corrected lines, do so in a separate post. This holds true even if the first game on the schedule did not tip off yet. It also holds true for past-posts and entries with no analysis. It does NOT hold true for posts that are not parlay selections, i.e. standings, commentary posts or congratulatory posts.

    6. And here’s the fine print:

    • Must be 18 years of age or older to participate.
    • One entry per household and IP address.
    • Must use lines posted in daily thread by LT Profits
    • Maximum one parlay pick per day, minimum 15 parlay plays required to be eligible for monthly prize.
    • Tiebreaker for first place - Win % of individual parlay legs. If still tied, combatants will carry on a head-to-head parlay match until winner determined.
    • All decisions made by SBR with regards to this contest are final.
    • SBR employees eligible to participate but are not eligible to win the monthly prize.

    Nuggets +8, Denver cannot play worse defense against the Lakers than they did on Sunday

    76ers +10, I saw a lazy Detroit team in game 1. The offense sucked

    ATL-BOS U189: Under last time, no reason it won't again. Atlanta in the mid 80s at best, Boston in the mid 90s.

    DEN-LA U229: The last game set the high total, which I see going down this time. We could still see a 120-108 scoreline, which is damn high, and cash.

    Detroit Pistons -10-The pistons are not a slouch team and they will respond back in this game with the big 4 all playing well. Sixer's had key contribution from Andre Miller and Maurice Evans to help them steal that win, I don't see them doing that today.

    Denver vs Laker 229 under-I think this game going to go under because George karl main emphasis has been defense all week, and Linas Kleiza should make an impact on the starting lineup. Plus, I don't think the nuggets will shoot well from the perimeter today and Gasol won't be getting them easy lay ups.

    I think this is a lot of points to lay in a playoff game. I understand Boston is the much better team, but bad teams tend to give it their all in the playoffs when they are up against good teams. As was seen with the Detroit vs Philly game already once.

    Los Angeles Lakers Under 229
    I don't think this game will be another shoot fest, look for a slower paced game here than Game 1 for the UNDER.

    I personally just teased the Pistons and Nuggets and i hate teasers, but for the contest, here's my predictions.

    #511 Phil/Det ov 178 : the Pistons should be motivated and get close to a hundred, the Sixers will pick up the rest.

    #514 ATL/Bos un 189 : the Celtics probably break 100, but the Hawks shouldn't get 90 against the Celts D.

    511 Philadelphia 76ers/Detroit Pistons Over 178 Call me crazy...every meaningful game between these 2 has went under this total (1 exception was at the end of the season when Det rested players)...Pistons scored 35 points in the 2H of last game and gave up a big lead. The Pistons have revenge on their mind and I look for them to gain the advantage by playing up and down ball.

    516 Denver Nuggets/Los Angeles Lakers Under 229 I hate taking under in any game between these 2 especially considering the last game but I don't think that happens again...Karl is trying to pound defense into his teams head. Even if they play a little defense to limit some of the easy shots this game goes under.

    boston and Denver Under the towards.189 , 229
    Trend I'm thinking about is that the longer the teams play each other the lower the scores will be.

    Atlanta +15 even horrible teams don't get there ass kicked in back to back games in the playoffs...

    Lakers under 229 I think it will be a slower paced game now that they know how each other is going to play in the playoffs...

    Denver + 8

    Under 229

    Hoping the Nuggets come out playing some D, slow down Gasol from making as many plays.

    Nuggets +8: Should play better this time.

    Nuggets/Lakers Over 229: Both teams will hit triple digits with all the offense on the court.
